God, the Father

God calls us His children. How does a parent and child interact? The parent teaches, guides, decides, directs, plans, convinces, corrects, disciplines, gifts, praises, commands, demands, coerces, explains, provides, celebrates, loves. God does all that for us. We are the children. What does the child do? Questions, follows, learns, tests, submits, honors, thanks, loves, praises.
